From the outside, it seems Grace has it all. Only she knows about the cracks in her picture-perfect life… and the huge secret behind them. After all, who can she trust?

Her brother Josh is thousands of miles away, and he and Grace have never been close – he was always their parents’ favourite.

Her best friend Coco walked away from her years ago, their friendship irreparably fractured by the choices they’ve made.

And her husband Marcus seems like a different man lately. Grace can’t shake the feeling that he’s hiding something.

But when her seven-year-old daughter makes a troubling accusation, Grace must choose between protecting her child and protecting her secret… before she loses everything.



Thank you to HQ Digital, for providing me with a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review!

When 7 year old Kaia falls from a tree on a day out, her mother Grace is beside herself with worry.  But that’s nothing compared to the shock she feels when the nurse reveals Kaia has accused her father Marcus of pushing her out of the tree.  The only explanation can be Kaia’s concussion has her confused.  But as Kaia’s accusations mount and Marcus vehemently denies every one of them, Grace has no idea what to believe or what to do.
Every Little Secret was a harrowing and addictive read with characters that just jumped off the page.  A scenario that no parent would ever want to face and confusion over who is and isn’t trustworthy made for intense reading.  With chapters flicking back and forth between the past (with Grace and Marcus as teenagers) and the present, with multiple points of view, the twists kept coming, everytime I was sure I knew what was going on!
With plenty of drama and family secrets, this was a fast paced read that had me in that “just one more chapter” loop until I’d finished it 😄  I don’t think I breathed for the entire last few chapters of the book, Every Little Secret is a ride!
